A great way to get anyone to eat Kale! Addictive and unusual, and just.... really good! I saw this tip in a womens magazine, and the description as "addictive" persuaded me to try it. Kale be addictive? COME ON! We made a batch and when it was gone in 10 minutes, I knew it was a hit. Just try it!

These are INCREDIBLY addictive. My family went to town on them. The only downside to these is the "kale breath" and burpiness that follows, but we all agree that it's VERY worth it! Delicious!

Simple & tasty! The best part is I finally got my 2 year old to eat a leafy green thanks to this recipe! Will definitely make again. Thanks for sharing.
